him. de facto nancy pelosi is the speaker of the house rns and steny huher is the majority leader. >> you say that because. >> because we've had two major legislative initiatives in this, important ones, one to avoid the fiscal cliff, and plummeting off. and left to their own votes, the republicans rejected it. it was passed only because the democrats. and then after that, we had the vote on hurricane sandy. and the people of new york and new jersey and new england who were devastated by it to get the same kind of treatment that the people who suffered from cat in-- katrina did. left to republican votes and john boehner's best efforts have failed in the house of representatives. democrats passed it. both cases, democrats were the key. >> i thinks that-- these are exceptional cases. in the years ahead the republicans discover they can't govern controlling the house. the democrats are going to discover they can't get much done unless they control the house. and i think in general the general pattern is they both lost a lot of -- >> here we are the friday before the secretary inaugur
weeks later, he sits down with nancy pelosi and harry reid, passed 780 billion in stimulus, no one having read the bill and the republicans gut it and the speeches were wrong. the president tomorrow is going to sound right, okay? if he follows through on tomorrow's speech, he has a chance to be eisenhower. i don't think he will. i think he wants to be roosevelt in his second term. but that's neither here nor there. if congressional republicans can reach out on issues, take the case of gun control, i think the house judiciary committee ought to hold hearings in chicago. this is the president's hometown. the mayor is the president's former chief of staff. they have very strict gun control. and they are the murder capital of the united states, 516 dead last year. i think having a hearing on what happened before we rush into the next, you know , panacea, would be a useful exercise on a non-partisan basis. >> this idea and the other idea the speaker talked about about members of the black caucus going into republican district is kind of fascinating. part of the problem we have is the di
measure to hit the halls of congress. but house democratic leader nancy pelosi, heading into a hearing on new gun restrictions with philadelphia mayor, michael nutter, said the add crosses a line. >> i thought it was completely inappropriate to involve the president's children. they have protection because of national security and it was really inappropriate. >> do you think the nra made a mistake there? >> it's just a disgrace. >> reporter: other house democrats said the ad amounted to intimidation. >> we're dealing with people who aren't tiserribly stable, so i think that kind of ad, i think, is dangerous. >> reporte >> it was irresponsible, and you know, this is not your grandfather's nra. >> reporter: there was also outrage over at the white house.
